D. I. Anthony "pepper spray" Bologna has a pending civil rights complaint from 2004
From The Guardian viaCommon Dreams:

A senior New York police officer accused of pepper-spraying young women on the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations is the subject of a pending legal action over his conduct at another protest in the city.

The Guardian has learned that the officer, named by activists as deputy inspector Anthony Bologna, stands accused of false arrest and civil rights violations in a claim brought by a protester involved in the 2004 demonstrations at the Republican national convention.

Posr was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of second degree harassment, and held until September 2. On November 8, all charges against him were dropped.

Levine said that, in a departure from normal police procedure, his client was held in a special detention facility, at Pier 57, where he and others arrested were held until the protests were over.


This guy has to be suffering the effects of his parents naming him Tony Baloney. WHO would do that to their kid? Especially in New York. SHEESH!

7. The city should also be sued
for not getting this asshole off the force after his first offense.

Actually, that was likely not his first offense either. The city needs to stop looking the other way with these psycho cops.

I don't know what percent of NYC cops are psycho like this, maybe 1% maybe 20%. Other cops complain that they get a bad name from these guys. Maybe these other cops need to start busting these psycho assholes if they want to clear their names.

17. And all the other pigs who just stood around like good little Nazis
while this pig committed his felony assault under color of authority.

Reminiscent of Rodney King, ca. 1991

8. Ah, it was FILED in 07, though it occurred in 04.
I was initially thinking that that's a slow grind on that wheel of justice. It's still not terribly swift, IMO.


Alan Levine, a civil rights lawyer representing Post A Posr, a protester at the 2004 event, told the Guardian that he filed an action against Bologna and another officer, Tulio Camejo, in 2007. The case, filed at the New York Southern District Court, is expected to be heard next year.

9. I'm assuming it took that long to find someone willing to file on contingency
But I don't know that's pure speculation.

12. Tony Baloney. That is rich.
No wonder he's a malajusted cop. Some parents just don't think when they name their kid, do they?

14. If he's pepper-spraying women...
it might be because his own bologna is too short to make cold cuts.
